Jim Berkland

Biography:

Geologist Jim Berkland was suspended from a California Government Geology Job when he made a prediction that a major quake would occur during the 1989 World Series in the Oakland Bay Area. It hit and the government told him to not make any more predictions. Now that he is retired, he publicly states quake windows. Mr. Berkland uses tidal flooding tables based upon Lunar Perigee (time when the moon is closest to earth to affect more gravitational pull on the earth).

Bigfoot Folklore & Forensics

Filling in for George Knapp, Ian Punnett was joined, for the latter half of the program, by Bigfoot researcher David Paulides and forensic artist Harvey Pratt for a discussion on the relationship between Native American cultures and Bigfoot as well as their work using eyewitness testimony to craft forensic sketches of the creature. During the 2nd hour, anthropologist Kathy Strain talked about Native American Bigfoot stories from around the country. ... More »

Space Exploration & ET Life

Astronomer and author Jeffrey Bennett discussed possibilities for life in the universe, as well as space travel and exploration. A functioning space elevator, a concept first proposed by Arthur C. Clarke, is described in one of Bennett's books. The docking station would be positioned in geosynchronous orbit with a cable attached to the earth. Traveling at 800mph, the elevator ride would take three days, he explained. While Bennett doesn't see evidence for past civilizations on Mars, he believes there's a high probability for microbial life to be found there. Europa, a moon of Jupiter, appears to be a true ocean world, he said, and may also harbor some form of life in its waters. There are as many stars in the universe as there are grains of sand on all the beaches of Earth, he said. This suggests to him that life beyond Earth is inevitable, and we are not the center of the universe.A "UFO agnostic," Bennett said he hasn't seen strong enough evidence to prove that Earth has b ...

Cities, Jobs & Economy

Author Richard Florida discussed his work analyzing and predicting trends in cities, housing, economy, work, and lifestyle. Choosing the right city to live in plays an important role in a person's happiness and success, he said, noting that job markets are becoming more concentrated in specific areas. He also pointed out that we are seeing the development of "mega-regions" such as Southern California, Northern California, Bos-Wash (Boston-Washington) and Char-lanta (Charlotte-Atlanta), which are creating a new kind of geographical order. Different personality types tend to be clustered in specific cities-- extroverts are more prevalent in Chicago and the South, conscientious types in the Midwest, and agreeable people in the Sunbelt, he detailed. The open-to-experience personality type (introverts, outcasts, whiz kids) are congregated in a dozen American cities including Boston, DC, Atlanta, Denver, Seattle, Miami, Austin, and San Francisco. Interestingly, he has found that people in s ... More »

Earth Changes

Second hour guest, an expert in Earth's energy systems, Micheal Sunanda spoke about climate, agriculture, and Earth changes. An advocate for permaculture (sustainable living), he suggested that modern farming and deforestation are contributing factors to climate change. Further, he contended that farming methods are causing foods to become too acidic, which makes people sick. He recommended the book Food Not Lawns, for tips on how to turn your yard into a garden.Climate science based on computer modeling doesn't include factors such as cataclysmic cycles, Sunanda commented. The Earth is moving to a new position in the galaxy which can be associated with axis changes and pole shifts, he noted. For more, viewimages he sent us. Appearing in the second-half of the program, geologist Jim Berkland talked about earthquakes. Animals can react to quakes between 10 days to three weeks in advance of the event, and he postulated this may be due to the magnetite in their bodies sensing a ... More »

Bobby Kennedy's Assassination

During the middle two hours, Irish writer and filmmaker Shane O'Sullivan discussed his investigation into the many unsolved questions in the assassination of Robert Kennedy, which occurred 40 years ago on June 6, 1968. In the beginning everyone assumed Sirhan Sirhan did it and it was an open and shut case, but later evidence to the contrary began to emerge, he detailed. Sirhan had scrawled "RFK Must Die" repeatedly in notebooks which the prosecution said showed premeditation. But O'Sullivan suggested this was evidence that Sirhan had been under mind control. The CIA had been conducting covert mind control experiments with the goal of creating a 'Manchurian Candidate'-like assassin, who wouldn't be able to remember being programmed, said O'Sullivan, who added that Sirhan was likely recruited into such an experiment. The autopsy evidence shows that Sirhan was in the wrong position to have fired the fatal bullet, indicating that another shooter was present, possibly the securi ... More »

Angelic Communications

Angel communicator Ann Albers discussed mystical dimensions, evolved spiritual beings, and demonic entities.Angels are like the nerve signals of the universe, and can be thought of as frequency beings, she said. Demons, in contrast, are disconnected from the field, and consciously and maliciously seek to foster negative emotions. A good way to disengage from demons is to not indulge or react to them, so they have nothing to feed on, she explained. Albers said she is able to send her consciousness into other dimensions, which are spheres of awareness. The frequency of the angelic realm is like a beautiful symphony, with a swirling mass of color, she detailed, adding that she regularly receives guidance from a variety of angelic presences. The angels convey that humans have access to the same information or source that they do, and must learn to put as much trust in themselves as they do in them, she shared. Intention is important in developing the ability to communicate with ange ... More »

Power of the Crystal Skulls

Scientific researcher of ancient artifacts, Richard Shafsky discussed his work with the Mayan crystal skull and how it has conveyed important information about Earth history and changes. He was first introduced to the Mayan skull in the 1970's via a Mayan shaman, whom he said entrusted him to protect and share the wisdom of the artifact. Aware of a total of nine ancient crystal skulls (which have no carving markings on them), there could be even more than 13, Shafsky said. The Mayan skull is made of quartz crystal-- some of the other ancient ones were created from such materials as amethyst, aquamarine, and rose quartz, he detailed. The ancient crystal skulls are "stargates" and can conjure images of the past (such as a race of giants that once lived here), other dimensions and planets, as well as foster ET communication, he suggested. Images seen in the skull such as vortexes and a planet with a different color atmosphere are quite clear and can even be captured on video, he decl ... More »

Southern Ghost Hunting

Founder and director of the Georgia Ghost Society, Bob Hunnicutt joined the program to discuss his 18 years of research into haunted Southern residences, businesses and historical landmarks. Despite the area’s rich history, he said, the South’s many haunted locations have been, until recently, overlooked and that Southern ghost hunting groups are "breaking new ground everyday." He described the learning process of ghost hunting as "like going fishing, you throw it out there and see what happens and if that doesn't work, you try it somewhere else." Hunnicutt estimated that his group gets around 500 investigation requests per year. Along with rigorous background testing, he expressed the need to stay all night on a ghost hunt saying "there’s no way you can go into a location for just a few hours and hope to get anything."Hunnicutt also presented four EVPs that were recorded during one of his group’s investigations. The spirit alleged to dwell in the house had been communic ... More »

Earth Changes Special

A group of experts discussed earthquakes, volcanic eruptions, and climate change, and shared their predictions as to what we might expect in 2008 and beyond. First,geologist Jim Berkland and author/earthquake 'sensitive' Cal Orey spoke about quakes and weather cycles. Berkland noted that there's a relationship between earthquakes and heavy rain/snow, which can cause loading to the crust. Offering their predictions, Orey suggested that there'd be flooding in the Tahoe area, a possible quake in Alaska affecting the West Coast, and around a 6.0 quake in or offshore Northern California within a year. Berkland finds it more likely that a 6.0 will hit Southern California this year, with a seismic window particularly strong in the new moon periods of May, June and July.As a sensitive, Orey said she sometimes hears "ear tones" before a quake; Berkland stated that some sensitives get headaches before earthquakes. In the third hour, volcanologist R.B. Trombley and au ... More »

2005 and Beyond

Psychic Sylvia Browne returned to the show to share her predictions for 2005 and beyond. "I think we're going to see more and more of these," she said of the recent quake and tsunami in Indonesia. "We're going to have these terrible eruptions everywhere—we're in a polar tilt." She believes we only have about "80 more years left" before life as we know it ends on this planet. Then another planet such as Mercury or Venus, "swings into place" and the whole cycle of life starts anew there, she declared.Yet she also predicted that 2005 will be a better year than 2004. The economy will rebound a bit in the beginning of the year and then pick up more steam by mid-year. Unemployment will go down, and in the stock market, the medical technology field will do particularly well, she said. Weather-wise she forecast that Florida and North Carolina will be hit hard in 2005. Among her other comments & predictions: North Korea is of major concern and they should be watched closely.The la ... More »

Mars: Past & Present

Monday's main guest, astronomer and author, Ken Croswell (kencroswell.com) joined guest host Barbara Simpson (email) for a discussion about Mars. Because the red planet's ancient geologic history is better preserved than Earth's, Mars could offer significant clues as to how life evolved on our planet, Croswell said. In the past, Mars underwent "an enormous and catastrophic transition," including the loss of its atmosphere, he said, adding that Mars' smaller diameter may have contributed to its fate. Interestingly, he said that Mars' proximity to Jupiter probably prevented it from growing larger when the planets were first forming, as the larger body attracted more matter to it.Discussing Valles Marineris, a 2500 mile long canyon on Mars, Croswell said its location lines up near where a "canal" was once detected in earlier decades. Phobos and Deimos, the two Martian moons, could serve as "natural space stations," he suggested, for missions to Mars and further out in the solar sy ... More »

Bigfoot and UFOs

Monday's main guest, UFO and Bigfoot researcher, Stan Gordon (stangordon.com) shared accounts of his first hand investigations of strange events that occurred in Pennsylvania in the 1970's. In the summer of 1973 he said there was one of the largest outbreak of Bigfoot sightings in history, over a seven-county area. In one unusual case, Gordon noted that an 8-ft. tall creature was seen carrying a "small glowing sphere." In fact, he said that in a number of instances, UFO and Bigfoot sightings have been made at the same time. He told of cabin dwellers that were surrounded by five creatures with "glowing red eyes," that were accompanied by a craft hovering over the trees that resembled "a big Christmas tree ornament." In another investigation, which involved a dome-shaped object that emitted a high-pitched sound, a man who was there, began to growl wildly in the middle of the field, Gordon reported. The man fell down and began to rant about the "end of the world," as a strong sulph ... More »

Earthquake Prediction

The first half of the program featured geologist and earthquake predictor Jim Berkland who said we are just about to enter a "seismic window," i.e. a period of greater likelihood for quake activity. Correlated with the start of the new moon, he said a 140 mile range from both San Francisco and Los Angeles, as well as the Oregon and Washington coasts would be particularly susceptible. ... More »
